good monday morning, everyone. so close to election day. and we're going to start with the latest dramatic twist in the race. >> fbi director james comey delivered yet another surprise announcement, clearing hillary clinton again after sifting through thousands of newly discovered e-mails. that decision is not sitting well, as you might imagine, with donald trump, as he campaigned well past midnight in virginia he revived claims that the system is rigged. >> clinton heads to the finish line accom elizabeth hur. good morning, elizabeth. >> reporter: kendis and diane, good morning to you. and, yes. after the october surprise many doubted we would hear from the fbi again before the election. but here we are. just nine days after announcing the renewed investigation, the fbi says their work is finished and charges against clinton are not warranted. this morning, the final fight for the battleground states with donald trump and hillary clinton making a last push in a campaign
4:02 am
the latest from the fbi clearing clinton again. fbi director james comey now telling congressional leaders based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in july. sources telling abc that the new batch of e-mails contained duplicates that the fbi had already reviewed. trump who first criticized the fbi when there were no charges. then commended the agency the new e-mails were discovered. is now outraged again. >> right now, she's being protected by a rigged system. >> reporter: clinton's campaign saying they're glad the matter is resolved. but no public comment from the candidate. she's wrapping up a weekend of star-studded campaigning and declaring what's at stake. >> it is a choice between division or unity. between strong, steady leadership, or a loose cannon.
4:03 am
fighting to the finish. >> i want to be the president for all americans. those who vote for me and those who do not vote for me. >> on november 8th, we're going to do something so special. >> reporter: and here's what the day looks like for the two candidates. trump is scheduled to hit five states today with a final rally set in grand rapids, michigan, with running mate mike pence. as for clinton, her last campaign rally will be at independence hall in philadelphia with president obama, first lady, michelle, and bruce springsteen. kendis and diane? >> yeah, and the president will also be in michigan for hillary clinton as well. the final day on the campaign trail will stretch into the early morning hours of election day. >> abc news political director rick klein has more on the marathon campaigning and the impact of the fbi's decision. rick? >> diane and kendis, the october
4:04 am
the fbi director coming out with a surprise letter that suggests that the e-mail probe that he said would be opened just a few days ago now closed again. clinton supporters rejoicing in the news, saying it gives her a clean bill of legal health. heading into the election. donald trump supporters saying it was clinton's folks who questioned the fbi director's impartiality all along. the bottom line here is this clinton. if she's able to close the campaign the way she wants to, whether it's lebron james or bruce springsteen or jon bon jovi, she was hoping to make the big turnout effort where the attention is not on her and the e-mail issue that has dogged her campaign. donald trump will be scattered around the states to make up whatever ground he has. the momentum back with hillary clinton supporters. hillary clinton now once again established as the front-runner. it's too soon to call the election. there are still too many battleground states at play. clinton seeing a good weekend come out of a very bad stretch. diane and kendis. and the candidates, of course, are well aware that

>> both campaigns spent more on ads in florida than any other state. jonathan karl takes a look at the map with david muir. >> the state the democrats really hoped that they can put this away is the state of florida. right now we have seen early voting. it ended today. democrats have a 33,000 vote advantage over republicans in florida. the clinton team thinks it's actually much higher than that. they believe they have a big advantage among independents. if they carry florida, it's over. >> many of those independents hispanic voters. that could be a big headline. in the mean time, donald trump has to pick off some of the blue on the map. donald trump eyeing another big state? >> absolutely. look in the rust belt. wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania. no state more than michigan. the trump team sees signs that they could actually win in michigan. the clinton team is concerned about michigan, as well. that could be -- could be trump's ace in the hand. on the final full day of campaigning, clinton is holding
